Up and Over Garage Doors
Up and over garage doors offer an unparalleled level of security, making them an ever popular choice for a wide range of our clients.
The doors themselves can be fitted with multipoint latching to provide numerous locking points ensuring that your garage and its contents are kept well protected. Our up and over garage doors are mounted on tracks that run across the ceiling of your garage, providing support to the door as it glides up and out of the way. The up and over opening mechanism makes this type of garage door a perfect candidate for automation. This is especially useful for heavy or large doors for garages that are wider than standard width, where we would definitely recommend an automated up and over mechanism as the most suitable.
The Benefits of Up and Over Garage Doors
Up and over garage doors are an extremely popular choice for homeowners due to their unmatched security features.

Up and Over Garage Door FAQs
What are the most popular styles of up & over garage doors?
The most popular styles of up and over garage doors are canopy, retractable, and open-out. Canopy doors have a curved design that opens outwards and upwards. This style provides an aesthetically pleasing look. Retractable doors open upwards and slide back into the garage space, providing maximum drive-through width. Open-out doors hinge at the sides and open outwards. This style is easy to operate and provides full access to the garage interior. Overall, these styles provide a good balance of visual appeal, space savings, and functionality for most homes.
What size range is available?
Up and over garage doors typically come in a range of widths from 5ft to 16ft and heights from 6ft 6in to 7ft. These standard size options will suit most residential garages. However, non-standard custom sizes can also be sourced if needed to fit a particularly large or small garage opening. The size options available provide flexibility to find a door that fits your specific garage dimensions.
How much headroom is required?
For most standard up and over garage doors, there needs to be around 30cm (1ft) of clearance space above the top of the door. This provides room for the door to open fully along its track. Retractable up and over doors need slightly more headroom at around 45cm (1.5ft) to account for the sliding mechanism. Having adequate garage ceiling height is important for proper operation.
Can I get insulation?
Yes, uPVC and steel up and over garage doors can be insulated to improve thermal efficiency. Insulated doors have an inner core filled with polyurethane foam which provides a barrier against heat transfer. This helps keep your garage space warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Insulated doors are a smart choice for energy efficiency and moderating temperature swings.
